Full Plate Thursday Where The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather

 Our Thought's and Prayers are with all the victims and families of the Boston tragedy.
It has been a very somber time here at the cottage as it is all over America right now, although we go on with our life, the unspoken silence in the faces of all we meet speaks what we really feel.

I am very happy to see all of you today and hoping that you will enjoy your time in the country with us.  
Last year I featured Preserving Food a feature for canning, freezing or storage for the harvest.  Everyone really loved this feature.  Beginning this week that feature is being added  and will be available until the harvest is complete. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Full Plate Thursday Background Story
 When we were young and just starting out in life sometimes we did not have a lot of money. Most of our friends were having to stretch the dollars at the end of the month just like us. My girlfriends and I decided that we would pool our food for some of the evening meals right before payday... the last week of the month. I have some of the fondest memories from those days. We would all bring our food together and we had some great food and great fellowship. We would get the food on the table and everything ready, someone would bless the food and then the hostess would say "come fill your plate".
When you link to Full Plate Thursday, you are giving me permission to use a photo or link from your Post in a feature post on this blog, on Pinterest, or Face Book Every Week, I feature many of your Recipes on the next Full Plate Thursday, and on What's For Dinner Next Week, and I pin many of your recipes to Pinterest.
Please include a link back to Full Plate Thursday somewhere on your post.
Please visit with all the others, after all that is part of the fellowship that makes it so much fun, in addition to all the good food of course.
Please leave me a comment and let me know you are here, I really do want to be a good hostess.
Now God Bless You and Your Food and Everyone Fill Your Plate!

Thank You So Much For Coming Today and Come Back Soon!

  1. First one here... Thanks for the party each week. Have a great evening!

  2. Hi Helen....you are so lucky to have a garden and harvest your own food. I'll look forwarc to your canning posts. We used to live in a house with lots of surroundong land and had 3 gardens, but now that we live in the suburbs, we just grow in small spots among the landscaping. Not much to harvest, so we miss having a garden these days.

    Thank you for featuring my Sugar Free Pound Cake and for hosting the party each week.

  12. Thank you so much for hosting and letting me participate. I hope you liked my pickles. I submitted Angel Hair pasta this week.

    Hope you have a great week. I am so envious of your garden - I mean that in a good way. Is there a positive word to replace envy?
